Scotland’s Paul McKenna has long been ranked among our finest younger singers and songwriters, armed with a powerful yet intensely emotive voice and passionate social conscience, often expressed through his songs, a combination that’s brought frequent comparisons to the great Dick Gaughan.
The Paul McKenna Band's newest release, "Breathe", showcases Paul's development as a songwriter. Produced by Mike Vass, this new release expands on the band's trademark sound with added instrumentation to enhance and focus on the original material.
Paul and his band – comprising Robbie Greig (fiddle), Conal McDonagh (pipes/whistles), Conor Markey (banjo/bouzouki/guitars) and Ewan Baird (percussion) – draw on both Scottish and Irish roots, in a dynamic, full-bodied array of original and traditional material, along with songs by like-minded authors.
Young musicians from Fèis nan Garbh Chrìochan and celebrate Gaelic singer, Margaret Ford, will be joining Paul and his band in Glenuig.
